The Childrens’ Hour – November 3-7
Deerfield Academy Theater is proud to present its Fall 2015 production of Lillian Hellman’s “The Childrens’ Hour,” directed by Catriona Hynds. Shows are November 3-7 at 7pm in the Reid Black Box Theater. Tickets are available now.
Explosive and scandalous, The Children’s Hour is one of the great successes of distinguished writer, Lillian Hellman. Set in a girl’s boarding school in the 1930’s, a malicious student starts a rumor about the two women who run the school. The rumor soon turns to scandal which precipitates tragedy for the women. It is later discovered that the gossip was pure invention, but it is too late. Irreparable damage has been done.
